Def Jam recording artist Young Jeezy stopped by New York’s radio station Hot 97 for an interview with on-air personality Angie Martinez. During his interview The Snowman talked about the hold-up on his new album Thug Motivation 103, Rick Ross beef and his relationship status. Jeezy is feeling Kelly Rowland. Jeezy also premiered his new track “Shake Life.”
On Thug Motivation 103.
“[It’s] sooner than you think,” he asserted.
On his career, confessing to feeling “stuck between a rock and hard place.”
“The streets is all I know,” he said. “I dropped out of middle school, but I made it here. That’s all I’m comfortable with and understand. Trying to be that and a superstar is not the same person. I got too many standards to live up to. When you a hood star is like, ‘why you doing that?’”
On his dating life, saying although he won’t settle down any time soon, he does hope to marry one day, and adding that R&B singer Kelly Rowland is his type.
“I’m Mr. Motivation,” he joked about hooking up with Kelly Rowland and told Martinez to tell her he said whatsup. “We can work that thing out for a super remix.”
On his on-and-off beef with Rick Ross, Jeezy said things are at a standstill.
“We can agree to disagree,” he said, “But if it’s a problem, I aint hard to find. I said what I said, I aint see no harm in that. In my heart, I’m 100% real. You can’t pull out nothing in my past that can say I’m not 100% real. If you speak on it and that’s what you doing, just speaking on it, it’s entertainment. I’m not gonna argue with a grown man about me. That might put me in a box.”
“Can you coexist in the same place?” Martinez asked, to which YJ replied, “we’ll just have to see, honestly.”
Jeezy also premiered his new single , “Shake Life,” for the listeners. The track samples the Toto “Georgy Porgy” beat. On the track, Jeezy celebrates the good life. This Monday, Jeezy will be celebrating the six-year anniversary of his debut album, Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, in New York City at a secret location.
